They have the Cubs selecting Greyson Jenista, OF Wichita State
It's not a terrible mock draft (it's good), but I'd rather take every prospect selected after the Cubs pick in this mock over Greyson Jenista. That list includes: Steele Walker, Brice Turang, Mason Denaburg, Cole Winn, Xavier Edwards, and Connor Scott.
He's a good athlete, but there are questions about his bat. Most scouting reports say he'll have to move to a COF spot, but has a chance to stick in CF. He's already really big at 6'4" and 240 lbs. so my gut is telling me he moves over to a corner outfield spot. I like Greyson Jenista, but there will be other players available I like more.
He did hit really well in the Cape Cod League last year albeit with no power. I feel like he'll go somewhere in the second round.https://theathletic.com/363388/2018/05/ ... ll-follow/
